Job Opening: IA-64 Production Compiler Software Developer

IA-64 is Intel's new 64-bit architecture. Through features like
predication, speculation, software pipeline support, and a large
register file, the design emphasizes and demands a close relationship
with the compiler. The code generator phase of the compiler is
responsible for the best use of the above listed features. The
compiler is a key element to the success of the project.

We are looking to expand the code generator team of the IA-64
production compiler group. The small team is responsible for
predication, cyclic optimizations and scheduling, acyclic global
scheduling, register allocation, backend optimizations, and code

The job responsibilities include code analysis, existing phase and
optimization tuning, in addition to new optimization design and
implementation. Due to the newness of many of the architecture
features, there is a substantial amount of applied research involved.
The particular phase or optimization that the candidate will work on
will depend upon the candidate's expertise and the current needs of
the team.

We are looking for candidates with either industry experience in code
generation or recent college graduates who have done research in that
area. We will also consider candidates with experience in other
compiler areas if they possess performance analysis experience or
architecture knowledge and an interest in learning code generation

The perfect candidate would have the following qualifications:

    - Experience in some part of code generation development for an
        ILP processor,
    - Experience in performance analysis to tune code generator or
        optimization phases,
    - Computer architecture knowledge to better understand the complex
        interaction between the compiler and the hardware.

Candidates with only some of the qualification are still encouraged to
apply. The job location is Intel's site in Santa Clara, CA.

The Fox project on Advanced Language Technology for Extensible Systems
under the direction of Robert Harper, Peter Lee, and Frank Pfenning is
looking for a postdoctoral researcher. Applicants should have
background and interests in one or more of the following areas:

    - design and implementation of ML and related languages
    - advanced type systems, proof-carrying code and certifying compilation
    - embedded systems, network software and safety infrastructure

The ideal candidate will have credentials in system building and a
lively interest in language theory. Participation in teaching
activities is also encouraged. The appointment is initially for one
year with a potential renewal for a second year. Salary is negotiable
and commensurate with experience.

The Fox project is working to demonstrate the viability and benefits of
advanced languages for programming real-world systems, with an emphasis
on networking, mobile code, and related safety and efficiency problems.
